This workshop is suitable for those of you who have already done one of my wire jewellery or the Wire Blooms One workshops, or who have some experience of working with wire.
Inspired by beautiful summer blooms such as dahlias, create your own necklaces and earrings with coloured wires and glass beads for texture and highlights. I’ll show you a variety of looping, wrapping and stitching techniques to experiment with to create your own wire flowers which you can bring together into finished necklaces and earrings. There’s a wide range of colours to choose from too, I have two boxes of coloured wire of different gauges plus silver plated or black wire if you prefer something more neutral. Also included are 2 pairs of sterling silver ear hooks, plus clasps, necklace wire and other findings to make 2 necklaces. If you’d like to finish your piece with a sterling silver chain these will be available to buy on the day from £7-£9.
This workshop takes place at Spout Brew House, on the first floor, my studio is above this room on the second floor and you’ll be able to visit my studio too.
Spout Brew House, 70 St Edward Street, Leek, ST13 5DL
